This week's question
want to write another "Memento". How do I do
from the U.S.
This week's Answer:
Memento For Not Writing Memento
an easy one, Carson. Just get a hold of the
"Memento" script, copy it, and call it
"Memento - The prequel to the sequel". That
will confuse script readers so much that they won't
realize they're actually reading the original
script. Or... since it's a story about tracing what
happened in the past step by step, rewrite
"Memento" forwards. Step by step. That way,
even though you'd be plagiarizing and could be sued if
the script was purchased and even produced, you could
walk in backwards into the courtroom to gain jury
sympathy. I think that should work fine. But, just so
you're aware: A lot of judges don't look favorably at
But hopefully you can keep
your prison uniform as a memento.
